MODEM art center 1-3 Hunyadi János Street, Debrecen

MODEM's latest exhibition titled "The Image of Colour, the Mystery of Image" opens on the 9th of February. The exhibition presents a comprehensive selection of monochrome paintings from the Antal–Lusztig collection, which is one of the most important private collections in Hungary. The owner of the collection, which includes hundreds of domestic and international works, dr. Péter Antal started buying monochrome paintings in the mid-2000s, which have since formed an important segment of his collection. In the past decades, we have seen a small or large selection of monochrome works at numerous domestic and foreign exhibitions. Among other things, the importance of these exhibitions is given by the fact that, thanks to this exceptional collector's commitment, the spirit and heritage of monochrome painting lives on not only in individual works of art, along the lines of consistent creative endeavours, but also emerges from time to time in the public discourse on the occasion of exhibitions selected from the Antal–Lusztig collection. This time, a selection exhibition from the monochrome segment of the Antal–Lusztig collection, organised into 7+1 separate units, guides the visitor. Through the research of monochrome painters, it guides you through concepts of painting that are thought to be obvious, […]

Sára Hajdu will open an exhibition entitled Impulses and hold a literary evening on Wednesday, on the 3rd of April 4:30 p.m. in gallery room  21 of DEMKI Youth House Gallery. Sára Hajdu came into closer contact with painting a few years ago, before that she wrote poems for almost a decade. “Any form of creation is a kind of therapy, a journey around our soul, when everything else ceases, the heart also quiets down, and a kind of tingling excitement takes the place of the noise of everyday life. I have always been attracted to abstract art, my favourite is Salvador Dali. Each work is new and brings new excitement, for me this is the greatest inspiration,” Sára Hajdu says. Managing director of DEMKI János D. Halász will give a welcome speech at the event. Deputy Mayor István Puskás opens the exhibition with the  contribution of Katedra Theater Workshop. Since Galéria 21 is also an event hall, please call (36) 52 415 48 to find out exactly when the exhibition can be visited.
